discretionary revenue. in san francisco we used to use our vehicle license fee to pay for health and welfare services and in what we call the triple flip which is the movement of revenue within the state budget to local governments, we got the same amount of money as we received in the past and we gave the health and human services agencies the same dollar amount. but the state loss out on those dollars and in the end some of those dollars would have gone to transportation. in the state legislature, a couple of years ago on the urging of san francisco, the legislature passed the ability of local governments to raise the vehicle license fee up to the two percent maximum so that's what we're proposing and again the dollar amount over a 15 year period is $1.1 billion and although it's supposed to be a general tax, there's a proposal. we have three members on the board that's on the task force and wiener is sponsoring transportation. that will require a simple majority of the voters and the go vote requires 2/3. and finally two years there after, the task force is recommending a sale's tax
